A chair is a chair,

until it isn't.

I have found a new job! Well, I don't get paid really, and I end up paying others... but I believe it is my true calling to be a treasure hunter!

In the last two days I found and old venetian mirror, a pedestal sink, two mid century style chairs, and a possible Eames parchment zenith chair! Every single item in this list I found for a fraction of its value! I knew that all those hours browsing design sites on the web were good for something!

As a teaser, here is a really bad picture of one of the mid century replicas that I got. They are Cherner chairs look-alikes, but they are not the real thing. I don't care! I ADORE them, and I am keeping them.

What do you think? Do you like the style? Do you have information on it? Let me know in the comments please.

LOVE the chair... don't know anything about Cherner, but am pretty sure I saw one just like it at the art institute in Chicago a few years ago. Bet you got a much better deal... would love to see some of your other finds!
